Transfer student scholarships

K-State offers scholarships specifically for both in-state and out-of-state transfer students.

Awards for Spring/Fall 2019

Awards for Spring/Fall 2020

Priority Dates

The combined admission/scholarship application, application fee, and up-to-date transcripts (including grades from previous term/semester) from all institutions attended must be submitted to K-State by Dec. 1 for students starting in the spring and Feb. 1 for students starting in the summer or fall.

Transfer scholarship eligibility requirements

Transfer students are subject to both the eligibility criteria for the individual awards offered and the following requirements:

  • Must have 24 or more transfer hours completed prior to arrival at K-State.

  • Must be a full-time domestic student on the Manhattan, Polytechnic or Olathe campus.

  • Students may receive only one university transfer scholarship, but may receive PTK scholarship(s) in addition to the university award.

  • Scholarship awards are stackable with departmental and college awards.

  • Students who are readmitted (have attended K-State previously), have previously completed a bachelor’s degree, or are international may be considered for college and departmental awards but are not eligible for transfer scholarships.

  • Transfer scholarship funding is limited for in-state awards, thus priority will be given to Kansas community college students.

General renewal requirements

Several K-State scholarships are renewable with a K-State GPA requirement outlined in each individual scholarship's criteria. Additional renewal criteria that apply across all awards include:

  • Maintaining full-time enrollment (a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester (fall/spring)) of K-State coursework leading toward degree completion 
  • Maintaining continuous enrollment at K-State for the duration of the scholarship
